Bibi Lewis @Bibi_LewisA new year and a new age have me feeling revitalized and hungry for new projects. Here’s a quick lil #mswl while my work computer wakes up
Top of my list is juicy contemporary romance. Give me humor, give me tears, and above all give me side friendships as nuanced as the main romance #mswl
#MSWL Still want my BEARTOWN! Drop me in the middle of a tight-knit community facing a reckoning and shape the conflict through the whispers of neighbors and friends. Get me so invested in the characters that I start to care about sports! Surprise me! See: LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE
#MSWL coming of age stories that flirt with danger, suspense, and death. Juicy adult novels that explore the sinister side of friendships, relationships, and lost innocence (bonus points for alternating timelines). See: THE GIRLS, MY DARK VANESSA, YOU WILL KNOW ME, SECRET HISTORY
Bryn Donovan @BrynDonovanHey authors and agents! I'm looking to acquire several books for @HallmarkPublish in Sept. We make deals with agents on 3 chapters and a synopsis. Here are a couple of specific things I'm looking for, but I'll have more wishlist items later in the month!
1. Romance or women's fiction with higher stakes than you might expect from us; think Kristin Hannah, but make it Hallmark. Focus on family, friendship, and/or community. Contemporary only, happy ending only.

The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix
The next HELLO GIRLS remains on the top of my #MSWL, but as I consider endless, emotional, meaningful platonic love and the types of female friendships that are ride or die in the way my own have been—especially as teens, in high school, in YA—let's add BOOKSMART as an example.
I love the quirkiness and humor and vibes of TAZ (The Adventure Zone) so much. So if someone wants to send me a YA about a bunch of friends doing their actual play/gaming podcast and just living their best lives I would be forever in your debt. #mswl
General fiction: Stories about unique experiences/people, complex families and history, siblinghood, friendship, self-growth. Looking for works that speak to the peculiarities of the human condition with a unique protagonist. Interested in quiet stories with big impact!
sil ♡ @thebookvoyagersfriends to lovers is good and all but estranged best friends to lovers just hits differently 🙌🏻✨ the tension, the unresolved feelings, the sadness of not being there for them for years, the getting to know one another all over again CHEF KISS 💋
This is always on my #MSWL.
Break my heart open!!!

hi hello #mswl please????????
I can’t stop thinking about the twists in Panic. I’d LOVE to see something in this vein with a friendship twist and some sort of romantic entanglement. Make it dark, twisted, and set somewhere fresh and new. #MSWL
27. UNDEAD GIRL GANG by @ms_lilyanderson
I LOVE this book. It’s funny, it’s witchy, it has teeth—and it’s also about friendship 💜 The vibes are just perfect.
(Ahem #MSWL for anything comped to this book for those reasons)
